SCM Account Types

Simpson Capital’s service is right for all account types of people large or small, young or old, rich or not so rich and individuals or institutions. This notion is based on the philosophy SCM uses to treat your holdings as a whole rather than discrete bundled techniques.

All Account Types

It works for someone at a large broker who is looking for more personal service and won’t settle for advice which is only suitable. It works for the beginning investor who’s too timid or doesn’t think they have enough money to go to the big firms. First timers and sophisticated ones are welcome.

Our vision is to make the process fruitful and ‘user friendly’ for all account types, thus adding value to your pursuit of hopes and dreams. Our mission is to build a clear plan, express their intent and act on the plan with good old stock and bond.

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

  • Traditional IRA — A traditional IRA can be contributory, rollover, or spousal.
  • Roth IRA —  An individual retirement account featuring post-tax contributions with tax-free growth. Your client’s ability to contribute to a Roth IRA depends on his or her adjusted gross income.
  • Custodial IRA —  A traditional or Roth IRA account established for a minor who has earned income. The custodian must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Inherited IRA Also known as a beneficiary IRA, an inherited IRA is available to any designated beneficiary upon the death of the original IRA holder.
  • 403(b)(7) custodial account Prior to 2007 —  employees of tax-exempt charitable, educational, or religious institutions offering 403(b) plans could transfer their plan assets to a 403(b)(7) custodial account in order to broaden their investment choices.

  • 529 College Savings Plans — a state-sponsored education savings program that allows individuals, regardless of their income or state residency, to set aside assets in a tax-deferred account to pay for a student’s post-secondary education.r

Small Business Retirement Accounts

  • SEP IRA  a simplified employee pension plan is one of the easiest small business retirement plans to set up and maintain. You can make sizable contributions and there’s little administration. Tax filing isn’t required and yearly contributions can vary, and even be skipped. SEP-IRA plans consist of an employer account and a separate participant account. Employers make tax-deductible contributions to the separate accounts for themselves, and for eligible employees
  • SIMPLE IRAs a retirement plan for small businesses with up to 100 employees. Two account types—employer and participant—work together to form a SIMPLE IRA.With this plan, eligible employees can fund their own accounts through regular salary deferrals, and employers can supplement employee accounts with annual contribution
  • QRPs commonly known as a Keogh, consists of three different account types: a money purchase plan, a profit-sharing plan, and a paired plan. These plans allow for large annual contributions, making them appropriate for clients with high, stable incomes and few to no employees. SCM services and maintains existing plans and allows employers to add new participants to their existing QRP.
  • Defined Benefit Plans a personal defined benefit plan is a retirement solution for high-earning small-business owners. This plan offers participants a specific monthly lifetime benefit amount at retirement. Contribution amounts with this plan are calculated and adjusted annually to reach the targeted goal. This plan is best for professionals age 50 or over who can make annual contributions of $80,000 or more for at least five years and who have few if any employees.You may prefer this plan to a defined contribution plan because it allows aggressive savings in a short time frame with maximum tax deductible.

Multiple Individuals

  • Trust Account A trust is a fiduciary arrangement in which one party, a trustor, appoints a trustee to manage assets for the benefit of one or more beneficiaries for a designated amount of time or until specified requirements are met. A trust may be in effect during the trustor’s lifetime (living or inter vivos trust) or it may be created through a decedent’s will (testamentary trust)
  • Organization Account An organization is a legal entity that has been authorized by a state government to conduct business in that state. You can open a domestic incorporated or non-incorporated organization account for organizations governed by U.S. jurisdictions.
  • Joint tenants with rights of survivor-ship A joint tenancy or joint tenancy with right of survivorship (JTROS, JTWROS or JT TEN WROS) is a type of concurrent estate in which co-owners have a right of survivor-ship, meaning that if one owner dies, that owner’s interest in the property will pass to the surviving owner or owners by operation of law, and avoiding probate. The deceased owner’s interest in the property simply evaporates and cannot be inherited by his or her heirs.
